Philosophy Meeting in English: Capital Punishment at Puzata Khata

June 17, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
This time the discussion will focus on capital punishment. Is it expedient to use capital punishment, and if yes, in what cases? Or should the death penalty be abolished altogether? Can the abolishment of capital punishment promote crime, as criminal will know that no matter what they do they won’t have to pay with their lives for it? And if we insist of having the death penalty, what do we do with the imperfections of the legal system and human judgment?See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: The Role of Traditions at Puzata Khata

June 8, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
This discussion will focus on traditions and the role they play in the life of individuals in particular and society at large. Is it really important to observe traditions, or would we be better-off if we dumped them as useless vestiges of the past? Does our society stand to benefit anything from traditions, or are they just obstacles on the way to progress? See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Rethinking Prisons at Puzata Khata

June 3, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
The objective of incarcerating people is to punish wrongdoers and to reduce the harm done by criminals. While prisons undoubtedly meet this objective, the prison system is far from being perfect and leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Should prisons be reserved only for the worst offenders? How long should sentences be? Will short sentences deter would-be criminals just as effectively as long sentences? Should low-level criminals be separated from high-level prisoners? And most importantly,…See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Law versus Morality at Puzata Khata

May 27, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
There is no denying the fact that laws play a very important role in preserving social order. However, if we look deeper into the issue we’ll see that very often people are guided by moral rules in their actions rather than by laws. So, what is more important: imposing laws that envisage harsh punishment for crimes or instilling morality/moral rules into people? See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Surrogacy: pro and contra at Puzata Khata

May 20, 2017 from 6:30pm to 11pm
Modern technology has made it possible for people who were previously doomed to be childless to have children of their own. These days, infertile couples, homosexual couples and even single parents can seek out a surrogate to complete their families. Apart from the joys of parenthood, this has presented people with moral, and legal, issues. Should surrogates be allowed to charge money for their services? Should a surrogate be allowed to keep the baby if she changes her mind? Does surrogacy turn…See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Trust at Puzata Khata

May 13, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
Humans are social beings. They are made to live in social groups, to interact, and to engage in relationships with other people. Human relationships involve different elements, one of which is trust. But what is trust? How is it developed and manifested? Do human beings have a natural predisposition to trust? And do we really need to trust others, or would we be perhaps better-off if we didn’t trust anyone?See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Good and Evil at Puzata Khata

May 6, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
This time we’ll attempt to find some answers to one of the eternal questions of good and evil. Do absolute good and absolute evil exist? What does it mean to be good or to be evil? Do the ideas of good and evil exist in nature, or do such notions exist only in the human mind? Can we say that a person, or an event, is always good or evil, or are such things always relative?See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Should We Always Tell the Truth? at Puzata Khata

April 29, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
Each of us has found him- or herself in a situation in which he or she had to choose between telling the truth and lying. Sometimes decisions may not come easily as we might be torn between our desire to be truthful and the implications of the truth. This brings us to the question of whether we have to tell the truth no matter what or whether it’s better to lie or tell half the truth under certain circumstances. See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Societal Influence at Puzata Khata

April 22, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
Whether we want it or not, society exerts a certain degree of influence on us. It’s impossible to go through life without being subjected to this influence, however big or small it may be. Society imposes certain moral rules on us and tells us what we should do, when and how. For instance, it explicitly tells us what things should be approved or disapproved of, what we should have achieved by a certain age, and by what criteria we should assess people. But does it really have any right to…See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Respect at Puzata Khata

April 15, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
What does it mean to respect people? Is everyone worth being respected, or are there people that aren’t worth our respect? Sometimes we hear “You should respect me because…” Do we really have the right to demand respect from people? Let’s find answers together!See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: What Should Be Unforgivable? at Puzata Khata

April 8, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
Philosophy Meeting in English: What Should Be Unforgivable?We all err. There isn’t a single person on earth who has never made a mistake. We slip, ask for forgiveness, get forgiven, and then make new mistakes. The ability to forgive is an essential human quality, which makes human relationships possible. Without it, we would constantly bear grudges and wouldn’t be able to carry on with our lives in a constructive way. This, however, raises the question of whether we should forgive everything,…See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: What is Beauty? at Puzata Khata

April 1, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
This time we’ll talk about beauty. Many ancient and contemporary thinkers have tried to come up with a definition of beauty. Plato, for instance, wrote a wonderful dialogue Hippias Major, in which he expressed his ideas on the subject. As is clear from the dialogue, beauty can be a very elusive concept. Does this mean that no all-encompassing definition of beauty exists? And if it does, what is it?  See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Sanity at Puzata Khata

March 25, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
Quite often we say: “Oh, it’s insane,” without thinking what these words actually mean. But even if we give ourselves the pain to ponder on the meaning, we will come to the conclusion that it’s not always easy to draw the line between sanity and insanity, and that definitions may vary depending on the culture, the epoch, and other factors. Sometimes what seems to be insane at first glance turns out to be quite rational if we delve deeper, and sometimes it is the other way around… Sanity appears…See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Instincts at Puzata Khata

March 18, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
Whether humans want it or nor, their behavior is not completely instinct-free. We can be influenced by our instincts just as animals can. Is that a negative thing? Is instinctive behavior always bad? What role do instincts play? Can we control our instincts? And how can we know when our behavior is instinct-driven and when it is not?  See More

Philosophy Meeting in English: Expectations at Puzata Khata

March 11, 2017 from 7:30pm to 11pm
Society in general and people in particular expect us to behave in certain ways. Should we try to conform to excepted standards of behavior? Should we respond to societal pressure to get married or to have children? Should we strive to conform to various stereotypes, such as those of a good partner, friend or parent. Or should we try to live up to people’s expectations? And should we really? See More
